IAR is accessed via eRA Commons; therefore, reviewers need an eRA Commons account. When a scientific review officer (SRO) or meeting administrator invites a reviewer to a meeting, the reviewer receives emails about next steps in the process.
The Internet Assisted Review (IAR) Module is a system to support the review of grant applications and proposals. It provides a secure environment for reviewers to view applications, provide written feedback, and scores. The system provides additional features for scientific review officers or meeting administrators to upload meeting materials to assist in the review of the applications or proposals.
